Product Description

Product Description

The colorful Fried Liver Attack in the Two Knights’ Defense is a wonderful variation featuring a spectacular knight sacrifice on move six. At the cost of the knight, which Black must take, White can quickly draw the black king towards the center of the board. Little wonder that the Fried Liver is a favorite among young players who adore the quick attack as well as its name.

Young players are surprised to learn that most masters believe that the sacrifice is speculative, that White does not obtain sufficient compensation for the piece despite the early assignment of Black’s king to the center. Despite more than 400 years of looking, no one has found a convincing, winning line for White in this remarkable, romantic line.

In this e-book, Edwards demonstrates that after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.cxd5 Nxd5 6.Nxf7 Kxf7 7.Qf3+ Ke6 8.Nc3 Nbd4 White should simply continue to develop with 9.0–0!

Unlike many other inexpensive chess e-books, these are fully annotated in understandable, simple language. The profuse use of diagrams make these among the first chess books that you can read WITHOUT A BOARD at your side.

Jon Edwards won the 10th United States Correspondence Championship in 1997 and the 8th North American Invitational Correspondence Chess Championship in 1999.

I've been playing chess for a while, but never seriously. Recently I started to play on and was willing to improve a little bit my skills, and this book totally filled the gaps I had on this openning. It is not the ultimate book for advanced players, it is for begginers and casual players, like me, and I tottaly recommend it.
